The Department is considering the potential of vehicle sharing to achieve transport objectives. We are researching consumer attitudes to car sharing, so we can better understand if there are any barriers that could be resolved. At present we have made no assessment of the specific merits of community car clubs or their potential to increase the provision of community transport for older people.
